*Semester Online is a paid, for-credit service with an application process, so it does not qualify as a traditional MOOC

Some quick observations:

–       University of Southern California is the only holdout on this list.

–       It really speaks to the power of Coursera and EdX. There are some young providers like Canvas or FutureLearn who will need to find a niche or have a really great value proposition in order to be successful in this market.

–       It also speaks to the power of MOOCs. 24 of the top 25 universities offer MOOCs or MOOC-like courses.
